We engage five primary work areas that intersect and strengthen one another to advance a culture of dialogue at CU and the surrounding community.

  1. Dialogues Curriculum: We offer a 3-credit undergraduate course, "Dialogue Across Difference," which provides students the opportunity to learn what dialogue entails, practice dialogue, and be trained as dialogue facilitators.

  2. Facilitated Dialogues: We facilitate classroom dialogues, developed in consultation with faculty, that extend learning about course topics​ and community dialogues held outside of CU classes.

  3. ​Staff-to-staff DEI Dialogues: We develop staff-to-staff diversity, equity and inclusion dialogue programming, in consultation and collaboration with requesting units​. Our current focus in this area is collaborating with CU’s Finance and Business Strategy Unit to develop the FBS Dialogue Project. 

  4. ​Professional Development: We offer professional development for graduate students and faculty in dialogic pedagogy and dialogue practices. 

  5. Research and Development: We conduct assessment on our classroom dialogues and contribute to the fields of dialogue practice and dialogue as a pedagogy through funded research, conference presentations, publications and networking with colleagues at CU and around the country.
